Tequila Bomb

It's hard to imagine a bottle of Corona without seeing a lime wedge sticking up from the lip of the bottle like a peacock’s feathers. The citrus is integral to the beer, adding some tart edge to the smooth Mexican lager. This Depth Charge evokes that essential garnish, as well as the classic Boilermaker of grassy tequila and refreshing Mexican beer. While the classic Corona Bomb is sometimes made with Bacardí Límon, we opted for fresh lime juice, which creates a flavor explosion when paired with the raw heat of an especially bright blanco tequila. When you drop the mixed shot into a tall glass of Corona and watch those potent flavors bloom in the glass, you’ll hardly recall the boring old lime wedge.
